“Great little mom and pop hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I prefer staying at mom and pop places like this because they usually have little extras that more impersonal, low-cost chains do not. Bonuses: Free wine and beer happy hour (Moosehead -- pretty good beer!), beach chairs, free coffee in the morning, very nice landscaping and kitschy garden decor throughout, a few on-site games (first time ever playing shuffleboard), and patios. Centrally located... (St. Pete Beach is small so everything is pretty centrally located) so you can literally walk down the beach and find some beachfront restaurants serving lunch or dinner.

This is a great resort right on a beautiful beach. Very clean rooms, pool area, and charcoal grills. The one thing we did not like was we only had a double bed. Rooms are smaller so that may be the reason. It would not stop us from staying again.

Room Tip: Ask to stay on the side with the palapas it is away from the parking lot

My first time visiting St Petersburgh, mainly for a Job Fair attendance. I stayed for two days. First I would like to express, it's quiet, relaxing and convenient to shopping center. Cozy, clean perfect for that getaway whether is with your love one, self or family.

Try to avoid this place. We stayed here for one night and it was not a good experience. First off, the room was muggy and the AC wasn't working. We told the front desk about it and they said they would take a look at it. Nobody ever came. Since the AC wasn't working and nobody came to fix it, we had to rely on the room fan. Only problem was, when he turned the fan on a high setting, the lights started flickering. They definitely have some electrical problems there. Also, the room was pretty filthy. The floor was dirty and there was broken glass near the bed. This place needs some serious renovation and clean-up. If you decide to visit St. Pete Beach, don't stay here. There are plenty of other resorts to choose from. The only good thing I could say about this place is that it's in a good location because it's right off the beach.

Interesting review. Really? Would sum it up for me when I read this review. If you did stay here, and if your A/C was not working, and if you did report it and we failed to come and service it, then I apologize. All of our A/C units should be in good working order, and if they are not we have spare units ready to swap out. Just so everyone knows, all our maintenance work orders are documented and we don't have this documented anywhere.

As for the pretty filthy rooms, glass near bed, serious renovations and clean-up needed. I ask, did you really stay here? Did you notice the newly renovated rooms, with porcelain tiles throughout the room, the large LCD TV, the recessed lighting, the crown molding, the new blue ceilings and so much more?

To everyone reading this review, our property is extremely clean, myself and my family are on property daily to ensure that everyone is enjoying their stay. Please visit our website, what you see is what you get. No trick photography. I recommend you take our "Virtual Walk-Through" of our property, it's the newest addition to our website and it allows you to walk the property as if you were here.

I look forward to seeing our TripAdvisor Community here.

Very pleasant stay! Staff very nice and friendly! Love playing the shuffle board game and corn hole also! Pool very nice and clean. Close to the beach. The only thing that I didn't like was the beds were full size and I thought we were getting two double queen beds. Also the sheets and towels had a yellowish look to them and not white. But overall we enjoyed staying there.

Room Tip: Higher floors have to be careful just walking around because of distribing guest who are staying und...

We had a nice visit here, clean, spacious room but wished we'd had a better and at least queen size mattress. Friendly staff and folks visiting from all over, with many that have been coming here for years and years. There is a daily happy hour enjoyed by many. The location is great, very convenient to many things, groceries across the street. The pool, bbq area and patio are are very nice.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of the Plaza Beach Hotel-Beachfront Resort. I am very happy to hear that you found our rooms clean and spacious. I'm glad that you enjoyed the staff and guest , as well as , the daily social hour with free beer and wine. As for the mattress, they are all Full XL, so they are the same length as a queen, but a little narrower. Are next mattress order will be all queens, as that is what our guest are requesting and I take all request and suggestions very seriously.

Thank you again and I look forward to you next visit to beautiful St Pete Beach
